• Knowledge Apparel in Denmark has some shirts and shorts that I love, all in 100% organic cotton. I recently contacted them to see if the small leather tags on some of their other organic apparel is real or not. I will let you know what they (and I, in response) say ! In the meantime, these are cruelty-free and great for spring and summer:

• Activists from the Animal Protection & Rescue League will descend upon Telepan, a restaurant that claims to care about animals, on March 27 from 7 p.m. till 9 p.m to protest the restaurant’s selling of Foie Gras, a cruel product made by of force-feeding geese through a pipe until their livers become diseased and grow to 12-times their normal size. New York Magazine’s Grub-Street cover’s the story in their typically snarky way. Please go and leave comments in response to things in the comment section like “I’ve seen geese “force-fed” several times, and they loved every minute of it...I don’t think I’ve ever seen happier geese” or “The Center for Constitutional Rights said….” or  “They should try some foie gras, maybe they wouldn’t be as cranky…” or “I suppose we could respect each other’s decisions.” Hasn’t some genius invented a soundboard to respond to the same stupid things over and over? I feel like a broken record half the time.
